Inmate Says He Was Raped by a Harris County Jailer — Courtney Richardson, incarcerated in the Harris County Jail on charges of vehicular manslaughter, thought he was going crazy, and in many ways, he was. His eyes were so red from lack of sleep that it looked like he had been on drugs. He told the jail’s mental health staff he had been tempted with thoughts of suicide — the nightmares would stop then — and so he was placed in solitary confinement for more than a month, stripped of his clothes and given only a protective suicide blanket. He hated it there but, still, was fearful of leaving his cell, scared he would run into the guard he says sexually assaulted him on March 7.
Is Modern Academic Feminism Harming Women? — By many measures, American women are thriving. Compared to men, they are more likely to graduate high school, finish college, and continue on to graduate school. Women also make up about half or more of the number of students in law, medical, and business administration graduate programs. And women now obtain more PhD degrees than men. There are fields in which men still outnumber women, but at the same time women have pretty much taken over a number of disciplines such as psychology and veterinary medicine. Women can now freely choose whatever career path they want and are making their choices based on personal preferences and priorities.

Rape charges dropped, but NJ university expels male student anyway — The student, identified in a federal lawsuit against Rider only as “John Doe,” was disciplined in December after a campus administrative panel found him at fault for an alleged sexual assault of two females student in a dorm room. The student, however, was never prosecuted, despite an investigation by campus and municipal police and the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.

Survivors still picking up the pieces decades after abuse at hands of paedophile priest Vincent Ryan — A NOTORIOUS paedophile priest laughed while he watched boys as young as six years old have sex with one another. One of those boys, Scott Hallett, says he is scarred by what he was forced to do by NSW priest Vincent Ryan but, at the time, he did not realise he was being abused. “At the time I didn’t know what Father Ryan was doing was wrong,” Mr Hallett, 51, told the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse this week.

Why does the CPS report on violence against women include men in the stats? — Male violence against women is both a cause and a consequence of gender inequality, in this country and across the world. It is right and essential that official bodies strive to reduce and eliminate such offences, as an end in itself and as part of a broader strategy to combat gender-based injustice. The Crown Prosecution Service has just published its annual performance review titled Violence Against Women and Girls: Crime Report. This year, for the first time, tucked away in parentheses on the front page, are seven new words: “(Inclusive of data on men and boys.)”
